Scott Michael Greene. (Des Moines Police)

A 46-year-old Iowa man accused of ambushing and killing two police officers early Wednesday morning has been arrested, authorities say.

Officers had been searching for Scott Michael Greene, of Urbandale, who was considered to be armed and dangerous, police told the Des Moines Register.

He was arrested in Dallas County, Iowa, about 9:30 a.m. local time, about seven hours after the shootings, KCCI-TV reports.

The slain officers have been identified as Urbandale Police Officer Justin Martin and Des Moines Sergeant Anthony “Tony” Beminio.

They were killed in two shootings about 20 minutes apart in Urbandale and Des Moines, police say.

“It doesn’t look like there was any interaction between these officers and whoever the coward is who shot them while they sat in their cars,” Des Moines Police Sergeant Paul Parizek said at a press conference.

The officers’ patrol vehicles were riddled with bullets. Police said in radio dispatches that it is believed a rifle was used in the shootings.

1. Scott Greene Clashed With Cops Last Month After Being Kicked Out of a Football Game for Flying a Confederate Flag During the National Anthem

A man named Scott Greene, who matches the description of the suspect, recorded himself being kicked out of a football game in Urbandale, Iowa, on October 14, 2016.

The Urbandale School District confirmed to the Des Moines Register that a man named Scott Greene was removed from the football stadium that day. The stadium is at the same intersection where the Urbandale police officer was killed Wednesday morning, the newspaper reports.

Greene also posted a 10-second video featuring only a still photo showing him in the stands of the high school holding American and Confederate flags. You can see that photo above.

In the comments of one of the videos, Greene wrote, “I was offended by the blacks sitting through our anthem. Thousands more whites fought and died for their freedom. However this is not about the Armed forces, they are cop haters.”

He titled the second video, which you can watch below, “Police Abuse, Civil Rights Violation at Urbandale High School.”

“This is an assault on a person exercising his constitution rights on free speech!” he wrote in the description.

The 10-minute video shows Greene after he was removed from the stadium, interacting with Des Moines and Urbandale police officers who are trying to get him to leave the area.

It begins with officers telling Greene to leave for “committing a disturbance in the stands.” He asks them repeatedly, “Have I committed a crime?”

He also accuses an officer of “assaulting” him by “grabbing” him and “shoving” him around.

Greene also says he was assaulted in the stands and had a flag stolen from him.

“I’m a citizen of the United States of America and I would like my property back that was stolen from me,” he says. “I want to report the theft of property from myself. I was actually assaulted. I would like to report an assault.”

The officer then directs him to a public sidewalk off of the high school property.

“Someone behind me hit me and they stole, it was almost like a mugging, because I had my property and I was holding it and they stole it from me,” Greene tells an officer.

He said he was standing there “holding a flag,” during the National Anthem, when he was attacked by “African-American people” behind him, who took his flag. He tells the police he wants to press charges.

Scott Greene can be seen holding a Confederate flag in a video posted to Youtube by him.

An officer tells Greene the flag he was holding, a Confederate flag, is in violation of school code.

“You came just to fly the flag and possibly cause a disruption tonight,” an officer says. “You have to understand in the current social climate we’re in, when you fly a Confederate flag standing in front of several African-American people, that’s going to cause a disturbance, whether you intended to or not.”

Greene argues that it is his Constitutional right to do so and says he was “peacefully protesting.”

2. Greene Called a Man at His Apartment Complex the ‘N-Word’ & Threatened to Kill Him in 2014, Court Records Show

Greene has been arrested numerous times, online court records show.

According to the Des Moines Register, he was convicted of harassment in 2014 after police said he approached a man in the parking lot of his apartment complex, shined a flash light in his eyes and called him the “N-word.” Greene then told the man, “I will kill you, (expletive) kill you,” according to records.

He was sentenced to one year of probation. A probation discharge report filed in June 2015 shows that Greene received a mental health evaluation and “complied with the medication recommendations,” according to the newspaper.

Greene was convicted of interference with official acts in 2014 after resisting officers’ attempts to pat him down for weapons at the same apartment complex, the Des Moines Register reports. According to the police report, the officers wanted to search Greene after noticing a pouch similar to a holster on his belt.

Officer Chris Greenfield wrote that Greene, was “noncompliant, hostile, combative and made furtive movements toward his pockets,” according to the Register.

He was also arrested in 2001 and charged with domestic assault, assault causing bodily injury and fourth-degree criminal mischief. He was also charged in 2010 with driving under the influence. The charges in those cases were all later dismissed, according to court records. Other details about the cases were not immediately available.

Police were recently called to the home of Patricia Greene, Scott’s mother, for a domestic disturbance, and arrested Patricia after her son said she assaulted him, the Associated Press reports.

According to the criminal complaint obtained by the AP, Scott Greene told police his 66-year-old mother yelled at him on October 17, telling him to remove his daughter’s service dog from the house. Scott Greene told police he was wearing his deceased father’s dog tags, and his mother tried to tear them from his neck. Police said Scott Greene grabbed his mother’s hand and she scratched his face.

Scott Greene recorded video of the incident and showed it to police, leading to her arrest. She was released after posting $1,000 bail and is due in court later this month, according to the Associated Press. She was also ordered not to have contact with her son.

Patricia Greene appears to have been referencing her troubles with her son in a Facebook post Tuesday night, ”
“I can’t believe the love and kindness you are all showing me. With friends and relatives like all you guys, how could a girl ever go wrong. Things are looking up but, please don’t stop your prayers. They are still needed.”

3. His Daughter Posted a Photo to Facebook Saying #Scott’sLifeMatters After the Shootings, Saying He Was ‘Very Sick Mentally’

Greene, a father of three originally from Iowa, filed for bankruptcy in 2007, according to federal court records.

He lists a daughter and two sons as dependents in the filing. He also says he was working at an office furniture store and previously worked for a boating company.

A recent video on his Youtube account indicates he was fired from a job with a fencing company.

“First day on the job, 5 ton truck, pulling skid loader on trailer and driving 75mph down a gravel road. I was fired after reporting this to the owner,” he wrote in the caption of the video, which shows him filming as another man drives a truck.

He posted the video, which you can watch below, on October 27, but it’s not clear when it was recorded.

His daughter, Sammie Greene, posted a photo of Greene to Facebook with #Scott’sLifeMatters after the shooting, sparking angry comments.

“He was also a loving father grandfather and the greatest man I know. He was very very sick mentally,” she wrote. “Evil succumbed him and he made the up worst mistake. Now he will have to live with that for the rest of his life. But I will never turn my back on this man.”

“This poor man was consumed by the devil himself this morning. I will continue to pray for him. Along with the families of the officers,” she wrote.

Scott Greene’s Facebook page does not include any public photos or details about his life. One post from from 2014, about child abuse, is visible:

I have been surrounded by stories of sexual abuse toward children and I am fed up with the predators that lurk in our communities. It seems that nearly all of my dear friends, family, ex relationships, and peers have a story in their lives about someone being sexually abused as a child. We need to band together as a society and protect our children by all legal means necessary. We cannot turn a blind eye to these little victims that are now scarred for the rest of their lives. Please join me in exposing this sickness that lives among all of us. Do not be afraid any longer to speak out against child abuse, awareness is the key in keeping our preciuos children safe.

Police searched a home where Greene lived in Urbandale after the shooting. At a press conference, officials said he was known to officers.

Neighbors told the Des Moines Register that Greene put a Donald Trump campaign sign on his lawn about two weeks ago.

Register reporter Grant Rodgers added, “Neighbor also says Greene called police last week about a local burglary, seemed excited by helping law enforcement.”

Trump tweeted about the shooting, saying, “Praying for the families of the two Iowa police who were ambushed this morning. An attack on those who keep us safe is an attack on us all.”

His opponent, Hillary Clinton, also tweeted about it, saying, “Heartbroken for the families of two brave officers who were killed in Iowa. There’s no justification for this kind of violence.”

4. He Surrendered to a Police Officer From the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Without a Struggle

Scott Greene was taken into custody in Dallas County, Iowa, about 9:30 a.m., KCCI-TV reports.

According to WHO-TV, Greene turned himself in to a police officer from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources without a struggle. He was then taken into custody by the Iowa State Patrol and Dallas County Sheriff.

The arrest happened in a rural part of the state, near Redfield, the news station reports. He had been spotted walking on a G Trail, a road in Wiscotta, south of Redfield, police said.

Redfield is about a 40-minute drive from Des Moines.

He was taken to the hospital for an unknown reason after the arrest, the Des Moines Register reports.

Greene was believed to be driving a blue 2011 Ford F-150 pickup truck with a silver topper (truck bed cover) and a ladder rack, police say. The truck has the license plate 780 YFR, police say.

He was described as being about 5 foot 11 inches tall, weighs 180 pounds and has brown hair and green eyes, according to police.

5. The Officers Were Ambushed & Killed in Their Patrol Cars About 2 Miles Apart

The first officer, Urbandale Officer Justin Martin, was found dead about 1:06 a.m. when police responded to a report of shots fired in the area of 70th Street and Aurora Avenue in Urbandale, Des Moines Police Sergeant Paul Parizek said in a press release.

Responding officers “found an Urbandale Police Department police officer who had been shot.”

Martin was “still seated in his vehicle,” Parizek said at a press conference, “and he’d been shot and killed.”

Parizek said Des Moines officers were called to assist at that scene.

Google Maps shows the approximate areas where the two “ambush attacks” occurred in the Des Moines, Iowa, metro area.

The second officer, Des Moines Sergeant Tony Beminio, was found fatally shot about 1:25 a.m. in the intersection of Merle Hay Road and Sheridan Drive, Des Moines Police said in a statement.

Beminio was found by another Des Moines officer who was in the area assisting in the search for a suspect in the Urbandale shooting, Des Moines Sergeant Paul Parizek said at a press conference.

Beminio was taken to a local hospital, where he later died, Parizek said.

The scene of the second shooting is about two miles away from where the Urbandale officer was killed.

Beminio, 38, had been with the Des Moines Police Department since 2005. He was promoted to sergeant last year. Martin, 24, joined the Urbandale Police Department in 2015.

Beminio attended Iowa City West High School, where he was a standout football player and wrestler.

Both Beminio and Martin graduated from Simpson College, the university’s student newspaper, The Simpsonian, reported. Beminio graduated in 2001 and Martin in 2015.

Martin grew up in Rockwell City and was an Eagle Scout.

Beminio is the third officer to be killed in the line of duty this year, and the first to die by gunfire, according to the Des Moines Register.

Officers Susan Farrell and Carlos Puente-Morales were killed in March when their cruiser was struck head on- in a wrong-way drunken driver, the newspaper reports.

“I don’t even know where to begin on how bad this year is,” Sergeant Paul Parizek said at a press conference. But, “This is what we do. We come in day in and day out, we go out there and provide the same level of service regardless of what’s going on in our personal and professional lives.”

The Des Moines officer is the first to be shot in the line of duty since two officers were killed in 1977, Parizek said. The Urbandale officer is the first to be fatally shot in the line of duty in the history of the department.

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad’s office said in a press release that he had been briefed on the shooting.

“An attack on public safety officers is an attack on the public safety of all Iowans. We call on Iowans to support our law enforcement officials in bringing this suspect to justice,” the governor’s office said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the police officers who were tragically killed in the line of duty as well as the officers who continue to put themselves in harm’s way.”

The shootings also come in a year when five police officers were killed in Dallas and three officers killed in Baton Rouge in ambush attacks.

  1. “Details of the cases, including whether he was convicted, were not immediately available.” That is crap! The same online page that says what the charge is shows that the assault causing bodily injury, fourth-degree criminal mischief and the driving under the influence charges were all dismissed. Is your fact checker just that stupid or did you just want to mislead the public.

  2. You should find out if he was guilty rather than just post arrests. Love this “guilty until proven innocent” mentality of this country. FYI this was a senseless act but cops do arrest people for no reason all.the.time.

      • No. certainly not. BUT we expect some degree of integrity from our media. Few and far between are impartial. Most are outright manipulative.

        • Can you please provide some examples of manipulative and non-manipulative media, as well as the independent fact checking sites you use to determine which is which?

        • “called someone the n-word”? what is that dreaded word too dangerous to even be seen? Is that what blacks call each other as they threaten to kill each other?

          • You’ve been next to blacks killing each other Yank? Maybe it’s when you’re obsessing over blacks that you imagine what they say in certain situations. Lol either way you’re a clown

    • Where are your facts that cops arrest people all the time for no reason? You seem to have no problems spouting off reckless statements yourself.

    • For no reason? No, but probable cause does not equal beyond a reasonable doubt. Sorry but in my experience more “guilty” people beat the wrap than vice versa. Never confuse the truth with what is proven in a court of law.

  3. Honestly he provoked and continued to provoke. He was in the stands waving a confederate flag which as to this date is against school policy. And everyone knows that this was to confrontational, as far as the school incident. Now I ask…how should this escalate and gives this man the right (agree or disagree with his thoughts and how he views constitutional rights) to shoot cops. He wants someone who in his view assaulted him and who took his confederate flag away from him at a local school event to be charged… but then his mind escalates to possibly being the person who shot cops? UNBALANCED… even if yo listen to the video…he sounds unbalanced and confrontational… don’t care if his voice is calm… he knows just what buttons to try and push. and anyone thinking otherwise needs to wake up…

    • Everything he did was premeditated. He even had time to think about killing and whether it was wrong from one event to the next? He had a mission and he now he wants to claim he is mentally ill. BS.

      • yup this is how the world is revolving now…. hide behind stuff… and it is so wrong… but not sure what it will take to make it right anymore… feel like a huge reset will be heading our way fro the entire world… and will not be pretty for sure sadly to say. Many Blessings ~ bear

        • Senor no necesitas tratar a Don con un atitud paternalisata . Puedes se que esta usando un smart phone con teclas
          pequeñas. This has a lot to do with the NRA. They encourage those with mental illness believe someone is out to get them and they have a right to protect themselves. Yes hunter own guns. But so do people who are in constant fear for their lives and 2nd amendment right. I am considering I should own a few more if Trump does not become president. Look at how many are threatening to take over america by pulling out those guns they have been stock piling if they don’t get their way in an election. By the way has anybody had their gun lost in the last 8 years.

    • Are you dense? What does the NRA have to do with this?
      Would you be blaming the Auto Club if he ran over and killed those Officers like the Jihadist did to hundreds of People in France a few Months back?
      Your lack of intellectual capability is noted Moron.
      If found Guilty, this guy should hang from the Flagpole in front of the Police Headquarters, but I read that there is no Death Penalty there. Too bad.

      • “Are you dense? What does the NRA have to do with this?” Ah, maybe its powerful lobbying efforts in the nation’s capitol and most state capitols . . . the only time the NRA is slow to show up in a gun incident is when it’s a person of color, with the necessary permit, who is stopped by the police. NRA is akin to Trump . . . appealing to the lowest common denominator of human nature to spread the fear and keep and/or put them in power . . .

  4. Trump campaign just issued a statement saying the suspect, Scott Michael Greene, is really a black man who underwent whiteness surgery and only voted for Trump in the primaries because he was trying to fool people about his true intentions. And all the gullble Trumpettes said Amen.

    • These cops would still be alive, if they had just done their job — killing the sex-obsessed, illegitimate baby making, freeloading blacks — and not been harassing a white person.

      • Sense when is killing sex obsessed black people with illegitimate kids part of the job description? And to generalize us and call us sex obsessed is mind blowing! How do you know? Did you forget your meds today?

    • Gee, aren’t you funny? Don’t worry, your girl Hillary The Butcher of Benghazi still killed twice as many people as this Nutcase did.

      • Can’t we all, for just one brief moment, put our ideologies aside and grieve for these officers and their families? To do any less, to make this tragedy a political debate, is to dishonor these officers and their families. ALL of us, let’s keep our opinions in check, and instead, collectively mourn these families’ and our nation’s loss.

      • If Hillary is the “Butcher of Benghzai,” where four people were tragically killed, what does that make George Bush where over 3000 were killed on American soil on 9/11?

        • George Bush had nothing to do with bin laden (thank God he’s dead) and his group of American hating muslims high jacking planes and killing all those innocent people, police officers (who were doing their job), and fireman. if you’re going to compare that to what Hillary the killer did you’re an idiot. She needs to be in jail not running for president!!!

          • What do you mean George Bush had nothing to do with bin Laden? We were attacked on Bush’s watch, despite bin Laden warning he would bomb the trade center again (he first did it in ’93). Bush also allowed the bin Laden family to leave the United States in their private jet the day of the Twin Towers, and it was the only non-military plan allowed to take off from an American airport after the bombing. (The Bush and bin Laden family have been oil business associates for years.) Plus, the FBI, warned that an attack was imminent, and Bush’s Cabinet could not agree on a strategy. I see the 9/11 and the Benghazi deaths as a tragedy. However, if you’re going to hold Hillary liable for Benghazi during her Secretary of State tenure, then you need to hold Bush accountable for 9/11 as he was the President. For as Harry Truman said as President, “The buck stops here.” So, 9/11 stops at Bush’s desk. Your resorting to third grade school yard bullying doesn’t silence me, not change the facts. Speaking of facts, perhaps you should familiarize yourself with them????

          • As PolitiFact has noted, there were at least 20 instances in which terrorists succeeded in killing at least one person in attacks on U.S. embassies, consulates or traveling diplomatic personnel between 2001 and 2009, when Bush was president. (Not all victims were Americans.)
            But unlike the Beirut bombing, 9/11 and the Iraq War, these attacks did not lead to the creation of a commission, either cumulatively or individually. For the first six years under Bush, the Republicans controlled Congress, while for the final two years, the Democrats did.

    • What slimy rock did you crawl out from under. Right now I am ashamed I was ever a Democrat and it’s because of people like you and the politics you practice that shows me that I made the right decision. Now I’m proud I am no longer in a party with the likes of you. God Bless our Officers and May God Bless America.

    • Hillary’s statement says that you need to come over and put on your blue dress and give Bill a blowjob. Bill says you are the best in the business and he’s going to refer you to the Saudis who donated 185 million to the Clinton “Foundation/Hedge Fund as they need a good little dhimmie boy like you to service their jihadis

      • Your comment is SO disrespectful to these officers, their families, and their comrades. Why is your need to attack and insult more important than your need to honor these fallen officers?

      • Hillary is Satan, do you really expect anybody, with the exception of the other people in your echo chamber, to take anything you say seriously with a moniker like that?

  5. These cops would still be alive, if they had just done their job — killing the sex-obsessed, illegitimate baby making, freeloading blacks — and not been harassing a white person.

    • Ummm, thousands of those black babies you are referencing have WHITE MOMMIES! No problem with the sex obsessed comnent, so long as you are including white women in that number, whose illegitimate baby rate (both white babies and coloured babies) have skyrocketed to the same percentages as coloureds. Just an FYI….

    • I agree 100%. If this guy was such a bad ass, why didn’t he simply wait for the black person-who by-the-way, knock the shit out of him, to come out and have gun violence with him/them. Oh, I know why; most of you ignorant racist, don’t have guts to step to, what you call”the sex obsessed black man” Only cowards type. If you think you can take black people on……be my guest. Trust me, you will fail EACH time!!!! Sad, but true. Of course, the black person is the problem. If this is seen as true, then why not settle it with those. No, this coward jerk off, killed two cops. Total trailer park loser!!!! I am so sick of people talking about what they would do, but NEVER do…..The irony in that; leaves nothing, but irony. Go read a book.

  6. Did anyone notice his race was identified in almost all news releases within the first few lines. If he was black or muslim you would have to read a lot further to find that out. Maybe not till the next day or 3.

  7. No offense folks but I’ve been to Dallas County, Iowa. They’re better off dead. Just being realistic. Again not meaning to offend anyone.
    PS Vote Trump!!

    • Not a damned thing, but the LIBERAL media is going to do everything it can to connect a WHITE CRIMINAL to TRUMP. Forget the fact that Killary had the thug momma’s on stage at the DNC…. Yes, this nutjob is white. Yes, he supports Trump. Just because A= B and C= D does NOT meat A = D. Use some frickin’ logic. Or is everyone incapable of it???

  8. The home with the Trump Pence sign is not this guys home. Records show he last owned a home in 2010 when it was sold.

  9. SHAME on you Heavy for making this political. Talk about this man’s racism, hatred, and then throw in there he had a Trump sign in his yard. More liberal media bullshit. Trump had nothing to do with these cowardly attacks.

  10. White, blue-collar males are finding that the good jobs which they were first in line for are either no longer there, or are insufficient to raise a family.

    The world that assured them that they were superior to everyone else, has changed rapidly, and it must be a bitter pill indeed, to find that you must get out there and retrain for new employment or gain an education and THEN compete with others to make it now.

    Trump tells them everything they want to hear, which is a hoot, because your life is not going to get better unless YOU do something about it. They are no different than those who thought President Obama was somehow going to magically make everything in their lives okay.

    Right now, black women are the highest demographic entering college. They don’t yet make up the largest percentage of graduates, but it is telling that they understand that education is key to improving quality of life.

    Our country is littered with people just like Scott Greene—angry, and unable to cope with the loss of what they see as a birthright or entitlement. (Hint: it’s not—life is genuinely hard for most of us and survival of the fittest is a real thing.) No job, in bankruptcy, and he thought waving a Confederate flag at a high school game was a productive use of his time. Yeah, that worked out.

  11. Too bad if proven guilty he cannot be executed twice. Maybe just a lottery to see who get’s to pisson his dead body. -1 deplorable. Too bad innocents had to go with him.

  12. Why didn’t he (and guys like him) just move to Texas. I mean, they let you carry guns around on your person. Shit, they probably let you have a two-gun holster you can wear on your hips. They have the stand your ground law. Any excuse to shoot and kill people. Probably would have been a hero killing Law Enforcement there. Yup. He shoulda gone to TX.

  14. This confederate flag shit is stupid its a flag it didnt make people inslave people just like guns cant kill someone without someone pulling the trigger if you want to complain about what was done under a flag then don’t be a hypocrite if you bitch about the confederate flag then bitch about what happened under the american flag with the native americans which i think was much worse the what happened under the other flag at least blacks had more of a chance to survive then the native americans but yes they both are horrible should of never happen but if you gonna vitch bitch about what happened under bith flags equally

  15. Nothing excuses him for murdering two police officers. Perhaps if the situition at the school had been handled better, he wouldn’t have killed them. Blacks can take a knee or sit when the national anthem is played and that’s not causing a disturbance? Are they removed from school property? He has as much constitutional right to hold his flags as they have to disrespect the national anthem. Black privilege doesn’t give them more rights.
    He should have been allowed to go back with police to point out who assaulted him. The police knew who assorted him. They had his flags that were taken from him in the assault. Who did they get them from? The police should have gone after them so he could press charges.
    I’m not defending his action. Nothing excuses him for murdering police. He should be executed if he’s determined to be mentally competent and knows the difference from right and wrong.

  16. Damn it, why could it not have been a black guy? Damn, now how are we going to frame this to milk the pockets of the hypocritical red-blooded Americans and fake liberals? We can’t blame black live matter for this and we cannot squeeze any tyrannical laws that would give the cops more power to harass minorities either. Profiling white males is out of the question, that would start a bad precedent that would probably bite us in the butt when we or our kids break the laws too. White is right and we certainly can’t taint that by reporting the news objectively. We absolutely must break the news down into black crimes and white mishaps. Don’t worry Scott, our spin doctors are hard at work, we won’t fail you. We’ll look into mental health issues and keep your family’s lives anonymous. We promise not to call you a terrorist like those two black thugs that shot those cops for being tired of seeing their people shot down like dogs in the street. We also promise not to expose how deep the rabbit hole goes into your right wing leanings, else we expose ourselves and other cops as well. R.IP. Scott Dold Trump 2016 BRO.

    • Actually, if Iowa had the death penalty(which we should) this guy should be put to death. But instead he will rot in jail for the rest of his life. Too bad. Whatever his reasons were for doing it, is irrelevant. No justification for it, just like Dallas police officers. I cannot speak for the officer’s in New Orleans of there characters. But, just because they were Police Officers, is NO justification.

  17. Anyone displaying the Stars & Bars, the treasonous Confederacy’s flag, outside an historical context, makes a political statement.

    Scott Michael Greene has done precisely that … display with pride the Confederate flag. He killing the police officers in cold blood avenging his perceived loss of free speech is a political act … an act of terror.

  18. There was no reason for this creep to kill a police officer…..let alone two. He deserves the death penalty like anyone who shoots a officer/kills them. Mentally ill, oh please that is so over used! I say a public hanging might get the message acrossed!

  19. I know one law written in stone , thou shall not kill , and a statement. ” the death of anyone , man/women will diminish me/us as a society/ people

  20. I feel sorry for his daughter but mentally ill or not he took 2 men from families and friends over what a confrderate flag being taken from him at a football game. No excuse for him! My thoughts and prayers are with the 2 fallen officers and their loved ones! My brother-in-law was a police office and couldn’t imagine getting a call like the one their families received. Mentally ill or not he needs to be punished for taking our friends from us!

    • In this episode of when white privilege goes wrong, we have Scott Greene, a man who believes that he can show up to a high school game to harass black people then plays the victim when he gets kicked out. Well, that’s when Scott had enough. As a free white man, there is only so much one can take. He is use to cops pandering to his belligerence but when the cops decided to do their job, well, it was time to make an example. Take notes folks. Keep babying these entitled sociopaths and they will turn on you too. He was probably one of those maniacs cheering the militia members in Oregon who got off “Scott free.” (see what I did there)

      Those people always want to force black people to adhere to the flag and the government that does nothing for them, but if the same government holds them accountable, well it’s time to take up arms for their constitutional right to be white and also a dick lol.

  21. It is unclear if Donald Trump was in any real danger, however, Michael Scott Greene was known to law enforcement for threats against minorities in 2014. Local law enforcement did not inform Mr. Trump’s secret service detail of any problems as Mr. Greene attended a rally in Urbandale, IA, on Jan 15, 1016.

  22. If his daughter knew that he was mentally sick, why did she not help him to get help in a mental institution? Why did he have a gun?
    My heart goes out to the Policemen and more so to their families!

  23. “His Daughter Posted a Photo to Facebook Saying #Scott’sLifeMatters After the Shootings, Saying He Was ‘Very Sick Mentally’” to me when you cross the line and ambush and kill even one person any excuses go out the window and he deserved to forfeit his because of that. If he was that crazy now he is at peace, put the blame in the right place
